Hello, friends! Let's see what I can tell you . . . I'm funny, sassy, silly, and playful. I am organzied, romantic, dedicated and a hard worker. I want to fall in love with passion and with trust, and live a life with someone who always has my back. I am trying to follow my dreams and create new ones with the right person. I have a true hope of finding him, soon.
That's me in a nutshell!
A few more nitty gritty details . . . I grew up in Arkansas and Texas and went to college in Illinois (I LOVE Chicago!). I majored in Musical Theatre in college and still perform in local theatre productions any chance I get (just finished one that involved nudity - how's THAT for a conversation starter?!) My "day job" keeps me working long hours, sadly . . . I work in the event industry, so even though it's creative and fun, it's also stressful and eats up nights and weekends - but somehow, I will always make time for a fun date!
When I do get some free time, I love movies, tv, books, lying on a blanket in the park on a pretty day, eating out, street festivals, traveling, exploring new places, museums, singing along to music, laughing, sharing . . . I'm up for just about anything. A few highlights from this past year I have loved: went on a cruise to Jamaica and the Caymans with some people I met 2 weeks prior; traveled to Mexico for a week's vacation by myself (I highly recommend it); the Posters of Paris exhibit at the DMA; eating beignets at Cafe du Monde in New Orleans; the entire season of Breaking Bad; an impromptu visit to Chicago seeing old college friends; the Harry Potter party I hosted; the 2 musicals I performed in; the movie "Crazy Stupid Love," hanging out on my parents boat on a lake in Arkansas drinking margaritas with them. I am proudly a pop culture dork and embrace mine (and everyone else's) diversity, so if the typical "Dallas/Pretentious/Cookie Cutter" girl is what you go for, we will probably not get along.
I am divorced and do not have kids, but would definitely like a family in the future. I live with my dog, cat and tarantula (don't freak - we can talk about that later) and spend a lot of time with my theatre and event industry family-of-friends . . . so a lot of very interesting adventures! My crazy work schedule - and the fact that both my day and night jobs put me in contact with a lot of gay men - make it challenging for me to meet dateable guys, hence my joining of Match. I want to have a lot of fun with someone and take time to get to know each other (want to be sure before we take the leap), but I am definitely done with playing games . . . I am ready to start something real.
Tah dah! If any, or all, of this tickles your fancy, I hope to hear from you, soon! Best of luck to you on this daunting adventure!
